Suffering from FCD..."fantasy compulsive disorder"

Postby LS2throwed » Fri Sep 21, 2007 11:20 pm

Anyone else here that can admit they have this too lol...Everything you see in a real game you relate to the fantasy world, heres a few things Id ask yourselves

1.Everytime an unproven player has a good day you immediately refer to him as a sleeper
2. You always calculate in your head how many points a player got in one week when you see his statline for the game on espn
3. Youve had dreams over who to start before on saturday nights
4. Everytime a player scores a TD and you realize he wasn't drafted, you immediately think about if you should pick them up
5. Your most used term for the week is "sleeper"
6. You've rooted for a K in an actual game
7. You feel the need to attempt at least one trade a week in your league
8. You get on stattracker every sunday morning and rotate games on stat tracker for stat updates instead of watching games
9. When your team loses you have bad weeks afterward and feel depressed
10. You stare at your rosters for hours each day looking at how you can get better or how you will do this week


I dont know maybe its just me, but at least i can admit it ;-D

Rule #3) this morning my friend told me that he had a dream that friend #2 had hacked into his computer and executed a debatable trade that had original friend trading reggie wayne for someone questionable. friend #1 said that he was fighting zombies in his dream the whole time he was arguing about the trade.

Rule #9) I used to feel this way when I first got started in fantasy, but now I feel like I'm a vet.

Rule #10) Naturally.

I've watched terrible games because my Kicker was playing.

i wish WebMD had something about how to cure FCD

i actually cheered when matt stover missed a fg last week because i had thought about picking him up before the game and didn't follow through with it.

I probably spend anywhere from 10-20 hours a week on FF (including being on the Cafe) so I'd say I'm suffering from this so-called FCD :-B

I had a dream last night that I forgot to insert my kicker into my starting lineup, and the rosters had locked for Sunday's games. Actually, it was a nightmare :-°
